Our Vita videos of Ninja Gaiden 2

After a first successful port of Ninja Gaiden on PS Vita, it is no surprise to see the arrival of NNinja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus this week. Technically though, it is a bit of a disappointment this time, with framerate issues and poor in-game graphics overall. The game even tends to be very pixelated from time to time (when you leave the menu or when too many enemies or effects are on screen - as can be seen here), which is not particularly pretty even on a 5 inches screen. That being said, if you can go past the technical issues, it still remains a very good game in the genre, as challenging as you need it to be, especially in the hardest difficulty settings.

Yes, at least to a certain extent. I have to say I didn't pay attention all the time. :)

This isnt pure Ninja Gaiden 2 though Driftwood :)
Its a port of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 content + (extra content for Vita), hence the name.

Anyways, its a shame they can patch in gore into the PS3 version like they added it in Vita :(

Is Sigma 2 native res. Sigma 1 had a dynamic solution that would display native res and the game looks sharp for it I hope that is also the case here otherwise it is a no buy.

No, you typed "Ninja Gaiden 2" even though thats half true. I honestly thought it was NG2 from 360 on vita so i was confused for a bit.

I mistyped Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma 2 Plus the first time I wrote the description, and then I corrected. The title of the news I had no choice, the original (and long) title didn't fit. :p

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
